For the past four years, Hockey Helps the Homeless (https://www.hockeyhelpsthehomeless.com/kw) a charitable organization established to raise awareness and funds to help those experiencing homelessness in Canada, has given more than half a million to the YW and four other local charities (House of Friendship, Lutherwood, oneRoof, and the Homelessness and Housing Umbrella Group) to fund emergency shelter and programs helping to end homelessness in our community.  


Hockey Helps the Homeless hosts annual fantasy hockey tournaments. At each pro-am tournament, participants are treated like pros for a day, enjoying the privilege of playing alongside former NHL greats.
